    When we are ill, we call a doctor, and he examines us and diagnoses the illness. When we have a headache, a stomach ache, a sore throat, a cold, or a pain in some parts of the body, we call a doctor. He takes our temperature and our pulse. He examines our heart, our lungs, our stomach or the part where we have pain, and tells us what the matter is with us. The doctor prescribes medicine, and gives us a prescription, which we take to the chemist's, who makes up the medicine. If you follow the doctor's orders, you get better; if you disobey the doctor, you may get worse, and even die. We must obey the doctor, if we want to get better. If we have a temperature, we must stay in bed and take the medicine he prescribes. If we cannot get better at home we must go to hospital. If we are too ill to walk, we go to hospital in the ambulance. After our illness we can go to a sanatorium until we are strong again.

    When we have toothache, we go to the dentist's. He examines our teeth, finds the tooth which hurts us, stops or extracts it. Now here in Russia health system incorporates a variety of medical institutions. The medical service in Russia is of two kinds. Some state establishments give their employees medical insurance cards. They guarantee the people free of charge medical assistance. Some medical establishments charge fees for treatment.

    They may be rather high, but our medical service now uses all modern equipment and medicines and provides qualified medical help to all people.

    Medicines are not meant to live, an English proverb says. Yes, that's true and we may add that good health is better than the best medicine. If your health is good, you are always in a good mood. You have a sound mind in a solid body, as an Old Latin saying goes. The English proverb "Sickness in the body brings sickness to the mind, expresses the similar idea, but from the different point of view. The profession of a doctor is one of the most noble, respected and needed in the worlds, as we turn to a doctor for advise at the hardest moments of our life, when we fall ill or suffer from pain or some disorder in our body and soul. We complain of low medical treatment, poor equipment of hospitals, difficulties in getting this or that medicine and so on. What a pity we start to value our health only when it is necessary to take medicine. Taking medicine is an unpleasant thing of course, and if we want to avoid it, we should go in for sport and keeps ourselves fit. Physical exercises to my mind are necessary. Physically inactive people catch cold more often than those who do plenty of exercises.

    Physical exercises are good pastime. That is true that good health is better than the best medicine. If you do early exercises you feel refreshed you have a good posture and that makes you felled so pay attention to the way you stand waken sit. Here some rules for good health.

    1. Take long walks in the open air as often as you can.

    2. Keep your body clean.

    3. Keep your teeth clean.

    4. Wear clean clothes.

    5. Sleep with your window open.

    6. When you are reading or writing let the light come from your left shoulder.

    7. Have plenty of fruits and vegetables all the year round "An apple a day keeps the doctor away.

     Of all things people probably have diseases most. There is nothing more unpleasant than being taking ill. If you are running a temperature, have a splitting headache feel deezy or cough you go and see a doctor or send for him at once. She or he will come and feel your pulse, take your temperature, listen to your heart, tested your lungs, measure your blood pressure, etc.

    Certainly, he or she will prescribe some medicine which you can get made up at chemists [drug-store]. At chemist's shop you can get different kinds of medicines: pulls, tablets, ointments and many other things. I remember one of my most serious illnesses.

    It was four years ago. Illness started unexpectedly. Early in the morning I woke up and felt deezy and feverish. I had a splitting headache and terrible cough. My nose was running, I was sneezing all the time. I could hardly recognize my own voice. Besides I was running a high temperature. The doctor asked me to strip to the waist, then sounded my lungs, felt my pulse, examined the throat. I had phenomena and I was to be taken to the hospital.

    I had to stay for a month there and obliged to get a lot of penicillin injections. In the long run I recovered of course.

    But most of all I'm afraid of visiting a dentist. Toothache can't be compared with anything else. Extracting a tooth or having a tooth field are quite common things but now painful.

    Answer the following questions:

    1. How do you feel?
    2. What’s your temperature?
    3. Have ever had flu?
    4. How did you feel when you were ill?
    5. Did you go to the polyclinic or did you call a doctor?
    6. How did the doctor examine you?
    7. What did the doctor find? What was the matter with you?
    8. What did the doctor prescribe?
    9. Who went to the chemist’s to get medicine?
    10. How often did you take medicine?
    11. What happened after the doctor’s visit?
    12. When did you feel well again?

    Healthy Living

    It is a pleasure to look at a strong, athletic man and slim beautiful lady.

    It is known that healthy people live longer and their career is more successful. To look well you must follow some simple rules: don’t smoke and take drugs, don’t drink alcohol, don’t eat too much chips and sweets, eat more vegetables and fruits, sleep well, do exercises.

    We have lessons of physical education three times a week. We do exercises, run, jump, play basketball and pioneer ball, ski in winter. I think that we must have more PE lessons than we have now. For example American pupils have their PE lessons every day.

    I like to play tennis, to ride a bicycle and to swim. But most of all I like roller-skating. I could hardly wait when snow melted, I put on roller-skates and went outdoors. I spent one or two hours every day skating with my friends and we’ve got a lot of fun!

    I don’t smoke (nobody smokes in our family). I know that this very bad habit may cause serious problems in your health. I do my morning exercises, try to eat “healthy” food and think that this is really a good way to live.

    Answer the questions:

    1. What should you do to look well?
    2. Which bad habits were mentioned in the text?

    Read the funny story and say what mistake the man has made: 

    Medicine for a Headache

    One day a man went to the chemist’s shop. He saw the chemist and asked him, “Have you anything for a headache?”

    The chemist said, “I have a very good medicine”. Then he took a small bottle from the shelf. He held it under the man’s nose and opened it. It was not a great pleasure for the man, because tears came to his eyes and ran down his face. He couldn’t speak and didn’t like the medicine.

    “What did you do?” he said when he could speak again.

    “Well, I didn’t do anything bad”, said the chemist. “You wanted something for your headache, didn’t you? That medicine has helped you, hasn’t it?”

    No, it hasn’t”, said the man. “It’s my wife who has the headache, not me!”

    “Oh, I’m, sorry!” said the chemist. “Next time please tell me more about the medicine you want. And I’ll ask you more questions before giving you something”.
